Roslovic, Perreault, and Vesalainen trio earn another look

Maurice believes Perreault provides 'good mentorship' for young players

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton /

WINNIPEG - It was only one game, and a preseason game at that, but the trio of Mathieu Perreault, Jack Roslovic, and Kristian Vesalainen earned themselves another look.

"I like that we can have two guys playing with Matty Perreault can learn from him," said head coach Paul Maurice, citing how Mark Scheifele and Kyle Connor continue to learn from Blake Wheeler.

"Matty plays at the right level. Both of those other two guys being so young, we're always saying 'on the puck, play harder at a higher pace, at a higher rate.' So they have a really good veteran guy that does that. He's not the biggest guy in the league, but he plays as hard as the biggest guy."

Forsberg Hat Trick Helps Preds to Sweep of Preseason Doubleheader

Nashville Scores 10 Goals Over Two Games; Fiala Posts Five Points in Second Victory

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

It may not be as sweet as a postseason sweep, but it still does the trick.

Five different skaters found the back of the net in the first matchup, and Filip Forsberg tallied a hat trick in the night cap, as the Nashville Predators defeated the Florida Panthers twice to take the doubleheader by finals of 5-0 and 5-3, respectively.

It was Forsberg's line, along with Ryan Johansen and Kevin Fiala, who led the way in the second outing, combining for all five goals and 13 points in total. Fiala finished with a goal and four helpers on the night.

It may be early, but it was quite a start for the Preds in their first game action since last spring.
